    Having trouble getting my website to do well in the search engines!

    I have made several websites over the past few years and all have done very well in the search engine ratings and within a matter of weeks - usually coming out top. However my latest website Enhance Health & Beauty | Benitachell 966 493 722 which is a couple of months old still isn't...

    Is taking Roaccutane a contra for spray tanning?

    Okay this pretty well does what it says on the tin. I have a mega offer on at the moment of 10 euros a spray tan and I am mega busy. This is helping spread the word for the tans and also for the salon. I have a client who comes to me regularly for tanning who is also spreading the word...

    Nails seem to have stopped growing at the matrix - advice needed

    Had a client in today for a facial, however she showed me her nails and I have to say I've never seen the like - not in life, or in a text book. The nails are still growing forward, however as they leave the matrix and are now in the lunula area the nail is totally unattached (although the...

    Where is the professionalism?

    It must be New Year again! Has half the world and his dog got a Rio kit this Crimbo or something? The site suddenly seems full of people who seem to be using it as a substitute for training, asking questions that the most basic of training should cover. Well let me give you a wake up call...

    Do beauty colleges actually teach anything these days?

    Before I go any further I must point out that this thread is not aimed at anyone who has done this, but I get amazed time and again how we get students on here posting assignment questions with no idea where to find the answer. Don't these beauty tutors teach anything these days? Why not just...

    Please keep the witty one liners to a minimum in the Main forums

    I have noticed that the professional forums are getting clogged again with one liners that are unhelpful and non-constructive. Whilst comments like "PMSL that is so funny" may seem witty to the poster it can be very infuriating to the thread starter and others who are interested in a...

    Vital statistics!

    Now that I offer a wide variety of treatments I thought that I would do a breakdown of how much I am earning per treatment as a percentage, it was pretty interesting (%ages are rounded to nearest whole number)... Gel nails - 31% Pedicures - 26% Retail - 17% Waxing & eye treatments - 13%...

    Please if you are not a professional then be careful how you reply.

    Now a lot of you will know that before the Salon Geek, this forum was known as the Nail Geek and was a forum for Nail professionals and aspiring wannabes. Now we are the Salon Geek incorporating hair and nails and so we are "the salon professionals community" It has taken a while for us naily...

    The ultimate poll - Should sprouts go in room 101? (BTW the answer is YES!)

    So following on from the Room 101 thread it seems that opinion is decided on the outcome of sprouts. Before you decide, I think the arguments for and against being sent to the room of total annihilation are ... FOR Sprouts are evil incarnate, they are little green blobs sent here by Zarg...

    Brave weekend - cross contamination with hairbrushes!

    Okay all of us on the Nail geek, and even the Skin Geek, get hung up on sanitation between clients and what we should do. I just wondered what the hair geeks are SUPPOSED to do (ie what they were trained to do) and maybe what they REALLY do. The reason I ask this is that I get a really REALLY...

    Waxing Question#4 - Effective strip removal on bikini waxes and stretching skin

    As a novice waxer I am still quite nervous of bikini waxing - ie bruising or ripping off the skin, don't think i have done any yet. But I am always a little tentative when it comes to that finally ripping off the strip! Anyway I work on the left hand side of the bed with the client's head at...

    Waxing question#3 - full legs make me give up the will to live - help!

    Given the problems I have in Q1 and Q2 already given I know that it is not helping my quest to do full legs in a decent time as I am struggling to get the wax to flow as I want it to, and then maybe having to rego over areas because I didn't get the hair out first time. That said I just find...

    Waxing Question#2 - Problems with the Australian Bodycare system

    I use the ABC tea tree wax tube system, and I really find it great for a messy waxer like me :green:. However I have the follow problems that I just can't sort out ... 1. The temperature. I find that the thermostat on it a bit silly as it is only the last couple of millimetres that actually...

    Waxing Question#1 - how do you get all the hair off in one go?

    As you may know I offer waxing more out of duress than love. I am getting better at and I know I have a negative mindset which doesn't help BUT yesterday I had a lady who had very hairy legs and the hair was quite coarse. When I pulled the strips off not all the hair came out, so I had to wax...

    How do you get people to commit to the initial course of Microcurrent?

    Okay title says it all really! I have this darned expensive machine and somehow I always end up talking people out of the treatment as I say that they HAVE to commit to the initial course, and if they can't then they are wasting their money. So to those of you who have success stories how DO...

    Yaaay! I've finally got ADSL set up in my apartment IN SPAIN!! So of course my first port of call is back to the geek. Boy have I missed you all. I've done a few updates in my journal when I managed to get into an internet cafe but thought I'd be naughty and announce my returns in the...

    Let's cut people some slack please ....

    It is coming to the attention of the Moderator team that there are people who are becoming serial neg reppers to the point that Sam is starting to investigate it. So if you are giving out neg rep on almost a daily or even a weekly basis I suggest you stop right now .. or you could find yourself...

    SSW - Are oxygen facials really good for you?

    Okay bear with me on this one as this is a result of reading all those books I recently bought! This is what Paul Begoun has to say about Oxygen facials in her book The Beauty Bible ... "Here is the most pathetic but clear-cut demonstration of how insane the world of cosmetics truly is. After...
